Peek A Who Blog Hop

It’s been one of the hops I look forward to ever year…the Halloween Hop from Marian at Seams to be Sew.  I don’t know if people realize how much work goes into putting on a hop but Marian is the soul of graciousness and so fun!  And, of course, special thanks to the Fat Quarter Shop and Timeless Treasures for their generous sponsorship.  So, my Halloween quilt….about four years ago, I won a fun basket of Halloween fabrics at the door prize drawing at my quilt guild.

And, of course, with all the fun, spooky fabric…I needed to make a quilt!  Perfect for the Halloween hop, right?  Let’s just start with cutting everything into 2″ strips and start there.

I had been working on a combination of stars and squares and thought I’d just whip this up for Halloween.  Well, I realized I would miss the deadline so I decided to make an alternate Halloween piece.  The next year, I was sure I’d get finished but, well…not so much.

Last year, I put year 2 together with my progress and this year…it’s a flimsy!!!

The eyes are a paper-pieced pattern from Soma at Whims & Fancies.  The words are free-pieced a la Tonya from Word Play Quilts (a great book if you can find it.) Kudos to my inventive hubby who figured out how to photograph this while he was home alone…inventive use of binder clips for the win! (It was too sunny when I left for work and would be dark when I got home today.)   Now, I have to admit that I didn’t have a lot of Halloween fabrics when I started this but quite the collection has crept into my stash as I worked my way through the basket.  I’m thinking that there is another Halloween quilt in my future.  (I’m thinking start now for next year…or the year after…lol!)

Now, there’s a fun giveaway going on…a wonderful bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop.

  13. Hi Beth! That Halloween quilt is definitely a labor of love. Now that it’s a flimsy, you can work it into your quilting rotation and have it done in no time. I had to giggle when you said there is another Halloween quilt in your future in a year or two. {{Hugs}} Great job! ~smile~ Roseanne

  14. What a great scrap buster quilt!

I had an out of my mind experience looking at Amazon prices. Is the book really that good. I would love to have a good close look at your quilt while picking at you brain on how you made it. Thanks for sharing.

    • You can get the ebook from Martingale for less than $15 and it’s definitely worth it. It’s also one of the books that works great as an ebook. I’m thinking of a tutorial for the quilt, if there’s interest. Thanks!
